We noticed these white things coming out between a few of our corals and it appears they are spreading throughout the rocks. Does anyone know what this is? Where does it come from? How do I control/get rid of them?

Please always list what size tank it is and the age of your aquarium. Parameters will help as well. The bottom picture looks like Hydroids. Not really a big problem usually. Your zoas looks like something else but i dont know for sure. Did you dip your coral frag before putting it in your tank? Always always always use coral dip. I use Coral RX

Our tank is 125 gallons and sump is 39 gallons. Tank has been up and running for over 2 years. Current parameters are Salinty = 1.024 , Alk = 8, Calcium = 350, Magnesium = 1270, pH = 7.93, temp ranges = 75.9 - 76.3F. Frags have been in tank for over 6 months and all were dipped using Coralrx as well. Thank you for your response and any advice is appreciated.

Nice tank. Thanks for sharing. Your temperature and salinity is a bit low. Most would recommend running it around 78 to 80 degrees. And salinity 1.026 are you running a UV filter?
